(laughter) and the guy who is stuck in an uneasy alliance with you but doesn't really like you and ultimately saves himself by walking away from you as you are dying, that's us. (laughter) so do we have your vote? (laughter) i'm going to assume most of the tea party coalition has not seen the whole movie. >> allen west liked what he heard. >> so i got up and told the speaker i will drive the car. (laughter) quick, robin, to the bat [bleep] mobile. still, if nothing else, the democratic response to the republican's use of that clip from the movie "the town" did lead to one of my favorite recent moments in cable news. i give you chuck schumer maschugana movie breakdown. >> in the scene they inspire their house freshman, one of the crook
that is apparently unraveling. harris is watching breaking news for us today. harris, what do you have? >> jon, the big question is whether or not his defense attorneys will actually ask for this case and the charges to be dropped, and what the judge will say about that, or, if there's some other reason for them to meet. you know what, what we're learning is there are details that have come out about the accuser in this case, and her past, that even had the prosecution now asking questions about this woman. questions that this trial could hinge on, because she is their witness. the only way that they can really press sexual assault charges against dominic strauss-kahn is with her testimony, convincingly, so it has been said, by prosecutors up until now. will defense attorneys for dominic strauss-kahn then ask this judge to dismiss the charges based on the fact that the prosecution may or may not have enough evidence to go forward. we're watching this, that meeting is coming up, those manhattan prosecutors and defense lawyers, meeting in an office. as soon as we know what -- what has happened,

of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai

, after the media hype, it didn't work. it's passed away. >> we go from jon huntsman to tim pawlenty, a very nice guy, successful minnesota governor. yet the iowa poll that came out suggests tim pawlenty is in big trouble. >> he can't great through. he's on the sunday shows, making speeches at cfr, but he hovers around the 9% margin. if he doesn't make a move quickly, he better watch it. >> a cautionary note on pawlenty. he's been in iowa working for i don't know how long. he's got to be organized for the iowa straw polls in august. i think he's got to outperform whatever present number he has. michele bachmann has been in there three weeks. you have to organize the state and the community. he's probably been in all 99 counties. he might have a surprise showing in the iowa aim straw poll. unless he does, he's in, what was it, deep doo-doo. >> one way to look at it. >> do we arrive at a point where republican candidates -- >> that's the big question. to what degree is this base going to go with anybody but barack? i think romney will prove that out. the race is so unsettled at this po
million for the quarter. and speaking of spin another guy to watch is former utah governor jon huntsman, he may be one of the people that the democrats are most worried about, he pulled in $1.4 million since getting into the race not long ago at all. he's personally wealthy, though, at first he claimed he wasn't going to self-finance the race. now we're being told a little less than half of the $4 million came out of his own pocket. seed money they say. the campaigns have until july 15th to actually report those totals to the federal election commission, randi. >> and, joe, if you would, tell us about this guy carter, he now says he's running for president. >> yeah, well, look, this guy thad mccotter is someone we know from washington, d.c.? he's a congressman, he's from the state of michigan, and you may not know his name, but he's had five terms on the hill, so he's known pretty well. he plays the guitar, likes to quote the lyrics of rock 'n' roll bands, is supposed to make an official announcement at the fourth of july festival in his hometown over the weekend, and, yes, randi, he's
bernstein and contributing editor gabe sherman. it's kind of funny, what jon stewart said. >> he is funny. what's your point? >> it's kind of not funny, too. seriously. >> it's fascinating. are you doing the reporting? >> i have been. writing a series of web pieces. this is just an epic story. the amount of headlines every day coming out of this story. this, on a normal day would be, you know, a month long story. every headline would have a long shelf life. yet, they keep coming. to me, the next step is what does this mean for the future of news corp. and rupert murdock. who is going to step in if there's a management takeover. >> you talked in your last piece that i read how this seems counter intuitive but it's good for roger ayles. >> for once, all the critics are not talking about fox. fox is not involved in this, as far as we know in the hacking saga. it's a legitimate business. what's going on with murdock's tabloid has nothing to do with fox news. >> explain how his enemy's within his family and news corp. are going up in flames now. that leaves ayles stronger. >> that's been roger
% and jon huntsman with the excitement of his launch, 2%. romney, sticking his economic message and letting the craziness go on around him. >> they have run a very good opening portion of their campaign except one part of it. i'm surprised at the money. it's under $20 million. while it lasts, it's fine in compareson. four years ago, he was less known. you wonder where is the establishment. there's still a pot of money sitting on the sidelines that has gone to no one. maybe they are waiting for an alternative or say romney is figuring this out, he's on message, fine. all of a sudden, the second quarter number for romney is greater than the first. that could put away the race earlier than expected. that's the one part that surprises me. romney failed to ignite the money crowd around him and he's been flawless on message. >> the twitter town hall, we must clarify, the questions are twittered in. tweeted in. >> and the president doesn't type. >> it's not 140 characters. >> no hash tags. >> all right. what is the point behind it? a new way of reaching out and social networking. it hey, look at t
utah governor and ambassador to china jon huntsman, the most moderate of the candidates vying for the anti-romney vote. huntsman has already ruled out competing in iowa, understands new hampshire is a must-win state. >> it is absolutely central to victory. central to our pathway of success. it's a state that we can win. >> reporter: in iowa, which votes first in the presidential contest, candidates were fighting for the social conservative vote. there were long shot contenders, newt gingrich and rick santorum. >> hi, you guys. >> reporter: as well as tea party sensation michele bachmann. a recent poll has the minnesota congresswoman in a statistical dead heat with romney, while gingrich and santorum barely made a dent in the single digits. tim pawlenty also polled poorly there. the former minnesota governor raised a disappointing $4.2 million this quarter and has had no public event over the holiday weekend. but those in the bottom half of that poll can take some comfort in the fact that sometimes the early polls don't tell us that much. this time four years ago, mike huckabee
